I think the writing on Succession is generally very good but it's not without its flaws. While the show has some truly memorable lines and moments, there are also times when the dialogue feels a bit too ornate and referential. As one critic put it Succession is a show that loves to show off its vocabulary, and it can be a bit much at times.

At its best the writing on Succession is sharp witty and full of insight. But at its worst, it can be a bit too showy and self-indulgent. I think it's a great show, but it's not quite on the same level as the all-time greats like The Sopranos, Mad Men, and Breaking Bad.

Lmao it’s hilarious that this person basically said exactly what I said in my OP but in different words, then I say I agree, and I get downvoted but they don’t. OP backlash is such a weird phenomenon.
